SAN ANTONIO – A man who barricaded himself inside an apartment after he assaulted his wife has surrendered peacefully to SWAT officers, the San Antonio Police Department said Friday.

Negotiators successfully talked David Kevin Marbury, 50, into surrendering around 7:30 a.m.

Officers were called around 1:30 a.m. to the Castle Hills Townhomes in the 1900 block of Larkspur Drive after police received a call about a cutting.

According to police, Marbury cut his wife on the face and arm and then fired a gunshot through a bedroom door. The woman, however, managed to get out of the apartment and call for help before hiding behind a moving truck, police said. 

Officers arrived to find the unidentified woman with minor injuries. She was treated at the scene. 

Authorities say Marbury proceeded to barricade himself inside the apartment before the standoff ended peacefully with him being taken into custody.

Many neighbors in the area left their apartments as a precaution while the standoff took place. Those who were still inside were asked to stay in place. They have since been able to return to their homes.
